More to Olympics than Hockey

It is really sad to see all the amateur athletes that have strived, trained and sacrificed to get to the Olympic Games only to be overshadowed by the highly paid elite PROFESSIONAL NHL hockey players once they come to town.

I am so sick of it I cannot even watch any more as the news is totally dominated by them, even Castanet's Poll today is about how people think they will do!  Give it a rest people - this is not the true spirit of the Olympics.
